Description


In commemoration of the club's first World Championship in 1929, the Philadelphia Athletics commissioned an extremely high quality special presentation photo album to be given to players as a keepsake.

This very rare and highly desirable player-issued photographic portrait album containing 29 matte-finish 5 x 8 photographs of the 1929 World Champion Philadelphia Athletics roster and team personnel within (most are affixed, with a couple loose or becoming detached), individually signed by the subjects.

The album measures 11.75 x 7.25 and is gilt-stamped on the front, "Snapshots: The World's Champions Baseball Club of 1929, To My Friends," with the photographer's name below, "H. Madonna Wagner." These spectacular albums were created for presentation to players, team executives, and other important Philadelphia baseball figures; this example was given to backup outfielder Cyrus 'Bevo' LeBourveau, and is accompanied by a letter of provenance from his grandson.

Highlights in the album are Hall of Famers Jimmie Foxx, Connie Mack, Eddie Collins, Mickey Cochrane, Al Simmons, and Lefty Grove. Other signers are Thomas Shibe, Kid Gleason, Earle Mack, Joe Boley, George Burns, George Earnshaw, Jack Quinn, Bing Miller, George 'Mule' Haas, Rube Walberg, Max Bishop, Jimmy Dykes, Eddie Rommel, Sam Hale, Bill Shores, Howard Ehmke, Jim Cronin, Walt French, Cy Perkins, Homer Summa, Carroll 'Lefty' Yerkes, Bevo LeBourveau, and Steve Pflueger (clubhouse manager). Additionally includes signed portraits of the photographer and his wife, Harry M. Wagner and Marie Wagner. In overall Near Mint condition, including the gilt stamped covers. The autographs are unimprovable!

This is one of the most impressive team-signed presentation pieces ever produced and that it commemorates what, in many people's opinion, is the greatest team ever assembled makes it all the more significant. Accompanied by a full letter of authenticity from James Spence Authentication (JSA). Pre-certified by PSA/DNA.
